2013 Favorites

There was no possible way to limit this post to a top ten. I read over 500 books this year and so this is more like my top 10%. Since joining Rich in Color, I have been reading a lot more young adult titles and have been trying to choose more diverse literature. I want to continue that trend next year - more about that tomorrow. Here are some of the best of the best for me this year. -- Cover images are from Goodreads.
